Republican strategist and commentator Ana Navarro has decided to vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

"I'm a Republican who has struggled with my vote but decided to vote for Clinton," Navarro wrote in an opinion piece on CNN. "I did it out of civic duty and love for our country."

"I schlepped my absentee ballot all over the country for almost four weeks. I would periodically take it out of the envelope, look at it, shake my head in disgust, and put it back in my suitcase," she said.

Navarro claimed that Trump embraced racism, anti-Semitism, mistreatment of women and the disabled, which the GOP strategist did not approve.

"Trump has portrayed immigrants as criminals, rapists, and murderers. He does not talk about the contributions immigrants have made to America," she said.

"I voted against Donald Trump because I am Hispanic. On June 16, 2015, the first day of his campaign, Trump called Mexicans 'rapists.'  I was not born in Mexico. I am not of Mexican descent. But I knew he was also talking about me."

Lashing out at Trump for calling the system "rigged," Navarro said "our system is not perfect. But for 240 years, our democracy has respected the will of the people and allowed for peaceful succession. To question its legitimacy is irresponsible, reckless and un-American."

Navarro highlighted Clinton's areas of bad judgement saying she shouldn't have compromised on national security with her private email server, given paid speeches to Wall Street nor allowed her close aide Huma Abedin to simultaneously work for four different Clinton-related entities, but added that "we can and have survived presidents with bad judgment."

What is unacceptable, Navarro writes, is "the effects on America of a president with bad character."

"I worry that Trump brings out the worst in America. Division. Hostility. Racism. Bigotry. Misogyny," she said. "One vote is our right. One vote is our weapon. I am exercising mine against Donald Trump."
